Picks and Pans Review: The South Shore Railroad

UPDATED 04/02/1979 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 04/02/1979 at 01:00 AM EST

The last electric train in the country that connects two large cities plies between Chicago and South Bend, Ind. Railroad buffs from all over pay the $3.10 one-way fare which—if a friendly conductor is aboard—may include a lecture on the train's history during the two-hour-long ride. The 1927 electric engine may soon become a relic, though, because this line is in deep financial trouble and faces bankruptcy.
